this story is incomplete
it has not been fully shared
with my countrymen and with my fellow citizens of the world
and through this art, and through this poetry
i intend to complete this story.
my spirit is soaring
and imploring you to complete this story.
I implore you to heed my words,
brothers and sisters
because this is a story that needs to be said,
this is a story that needs to be told
this is a song that needs to be sung.
But I defy the critics to call it anything other than poetry.
